And just like that it's Christmas in Oakville!
Santa is coming to Town and that’s not all, there’s so many fun things to do In & Around Oakville this weekend to kick off the Holiday Season!
The festivities begin with Light Up The Night at Towne Square on Friday evening featuring the Sugar Plums followed by the Santa Claus Parade on Saturday morning. Find out Everything You Need To Know about the parade on the Town of Oakville website.
